We stayed in the Badgers Watch apartment but, unfortunately, despite some late nights on the balcony, failed to see any wildlife.
The apartments are very clean and beautifully furnished. The welcome is warm and friendly and the pool is great on cloudy days when no-one is brave enough to face the chilly Cornish sea. The gardens are beautiful and a great place for the kids to run around while waiting for dinner. The wifi was fine in the room, too, despite what we had been led to believe.
Why not a 5 star? The apartment is quite small - you could compare it to a 4 berth caravan (although it is more pleasant - especially the bathroom). There is no washing machine although you can give your washing to the hosts to do for you (for a small fee). The electricity meter is prepaid for 7 pounds for the week. Maybe we feel the cold more than others but we had radiators on some of the time and had to top up the meter after about three days. Finally, no fault of Basset's Acre, we just realised that, although Portreath is pleasant, our hearts lie further west or south in Sennen or Porthleven.
